Cypress enjoys a swift first council meeting

Without much on their lists yet, so early into the year, the Jaunary 16 Cypress County Council meeting was comparatively quite light, allowing for the County to get through what had been scheduled with a quickness.

Cypress received a delegation request from an Aaron Bauer in regards to the Meridian Dam and Irrigation Project, in order to present to council at a later meeting date.

The Council was invited to a lunch by the Suffield Community Association, which would be a full appreciation luncheon hosted in late February. There was one other proposed date, but Council will be in Calgary at the time.

Councillor Dustin Vossler put forward a proposal for enhanced signage at the intersection of Township Road 120 and Highway 3.

“What happened, there was a semi that took the turn and they fell over on their side,” said Deputy Reeve Richard Oster. “I’m saying he went too fast and flipped, fortunately nobody was sitting there waiting for their access onto the number three highway.”

It was noted that Oster did not believe that the site needed more signage at that intersection, as the recent incident demonstrated more of a lack of judgement on the part of the truck driver, than a lack of warning at the intersection.

Additionally, as all intersections will be moved as Highway 3 twinning progresses, it’s unlikely that any signage will help, though it is possible that the lanes being repainted in the future as the intersection is redone may help. 

Council has also put forward a motion to schedule a meeting with the Minister of Municipal Affairs in order to discuss various concerns or topics as part of the RMA Spring Convention.
